We love finding great small business success stories. Mike Samson's Twisted Stickers is one of them.
Laid off from his 15 year career in the label and bar-code industry, Mike saw a niche and decided to start his own label printing company. He started small, from a home office, taking the short-run orders the big companies wouldn't even bother with; specializing in custom kids stickers, labels for around the home and for other small businesses.
Each person has a slightly different size and shaped head so finding a helmet that fits well is just as important as the adjustments that need to be done.
It's no secret around the office: the staff at TorontoNews24 knows a-thing-or-two about cookies. So, when we headed out to meet Robyn, of Robyn's Cookies (hidden near Yonge and Lawrence), we were expecting another tiny, overrated cookie shop.
The next time you lather up after a hard day, think about this: that handmade organic soap you love may have been made by mom.
